The upper has engineered mesh, closed in much of the shoe as well as open venting in the front and sides of the vamp. Welded overlays add a touch of support, and an internal web of Flywire strands secure the foot. The midsole is very flexible, with a 4 millimeter drop, each a nod to the lessons provided by the Free, and they make the shoe truly slipper-like. The outersole is an angular collection of toothy lugs that grip well, but almost equally on or off-road, and the rounded heel touches down smoothly because there are no sharp angles to catch on – well thought out and very effective. The innovative design, protection, and outstanding traction earned the Zoom Terra Kiger our award for Best Trail Shoe, Fall 2013.
“A trail shoe with good traction, minimal weight, and feels like you’re running in a slipper. The upper snugs around the foot, so though comfy, they definitely hold in place. The cushioning is great for road or pavement and the sole has great traction on all of the surfaces I tried them on.”
